In January this year, an unprecedented storm ripped apart buildings, and tore off roofs at KAYD’s Vocational Training Centre. Staff reluctantly had to close at the start of their new year, sending recently enrolled students home, or to alternative training in Kasulu. Having been instrumental in assisting with buildings, equipment and salaries for trainers, through DAAT, over the past few years, TDT made their emergency application for funding a priority. This has enabled them to rebuild a major dorm/classroom and workshop. This work is now complete.

A huge THANK YOU goes to Liz and Ron Fennel for their generous donation of £2000, given by friends and family celebrating their Diamond Wedding anniversary. Due to new Government regulations all VTC’s have to be registered which is delaying their planned reopening. They are awaiting an inspection in September and intend enrolling students for training in January 2018.
